The National e-Infrastructure for Social Simulation is a JISC-funded project to undertake a coordinated programme of producing services and furthering uptake through community engagement to create a sustainable, long-term platform for social simulation with potential for major strategic impact, both in the UK and internationally. The project involves Leeds University, Manchester University (including NCeSS), Stirling University, Glasgow University, UCL, Southampton University, STFC Daresbury Laboratory.
Within the project, the Taverna team are working on:
- the integration of the Taverna functionality into a portal, i.e. providing JSR 168 compliant components that provide access to enactment, management, monitoring and creation of workflows.
- the re-purposing of services from myExperiment, facilitating their integration into a portal. An important focus will be the incorporation of social networking functionality to provide extended archiving and documentation capability for social simulations.
